Your Majorca questions answered 

What is the best time of the year to visit Majorca?

If you’re visiting Majorca for the sun and beaches, you’ll be able to enjoy them pretty much all year round. Majorca’s weather is great from April to September, with blue skies and up to 14 hours of sunshine in the summer months. July and August see the highest temperatures, upward of 30°C. This is also the busiest time of year for visitors to the island.  Another peak is the Easter school holidays when Majorca makes an ideal short-haul sunny escape. If you’re looking for a quieter, and cheaper, Majorca holiday, May and September are the perfect time to visit. The weather is still pleasant even in October, when average temperatures remain in the 20s. Visitors in winter months can avoid the crowds and will instead be treated with beautiful, natural scenery and secluded beaches. 


How long is the flight to Majorca?

From any part of the UK you can fly to Majorca in under 3 hours. Flying direct from London to Palma de Mallorca takes on average 2 hours and 25 minutes. From other UK airports, including Manchester, a non-stop flight will be up to 2 hours 45 minutes in duration. While from Scotland the flight time is approximately 3 hours. There is just one airport on Majorca, located near the island’s capital of Palma.


Is Mallorca and Majorca the same place?

Yes! Both Mallorca and Majorca refer to the same island whose name can be spelt two ways. “Mallorca” is the local spelling and most commonly used by Spanish speakers. “Majorca” was adopted by the English and other countries because the double “L” sound is pronounced more like the English “Y”.


Where is Majorca?

Majorca is an island off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. It is the largest of the Balearic Islands, a group of Spanish islands which also includes Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. Majorca lies off the eastern coast of Spain roughly in line with Valencia on the mainland. You can also travel between Majorca and the other Balearic Islands, Ibiza or Menorca, by ferry. 


What language is spoken in Majorca?

In the Balearic Islands, Catalan is the official language spoken. Each island, including Majorca, has its own regional variation. The local dialect is known as Mallorquin. In many of the resorts, especially in areas popular with holidaymakers, most hospitality staff will also speak English. On paper, Catalan looks like a cross between French and Spanish and is generally easy to read if you know those two languages. However, you’re likely to find menus and tourist information available in several languages, including English during your Majorca holiday.
